: tonight's top story, delays at airports coast to coast. according to the faa, flights into new york, baltimore, and washington are delayed because of not enough controllers on hand to monitor the busy corridors. joining me now, president of boy group international and erik hanson, director of domestic policy for the u.s. travel association. welcome to you both. i will start with you, mike. what do you make of this? the fda is saying many of these delays are two hours or more. is is the fault of sequestration or is something else, not? >> it is the fault of politics. sequestration is 600 million out of the faa budget. 4 percent. they still have a billion dollars in their budget, more than they did in 2008 and 8% fewer flights. no one in aviation is buying this. this is a political stunt, and that is all. gerri: do you agree? >> i don't know if it is a political side, but it is certainly politics at its worst. for the travel industry, a key driver of the economy, we cannot afford to sit here and have congress pointing the finger at the administration, the administration putting the fi

. the faa reported the first day of furloughs resulted in delays of more than three hours on arrivals at los angeles - less than that at other airports. "i was delayed from laguardia. we were on the ground for about an hour. they made it up in the air, but we were delayed today." but delays in chicago were spotty, though passengers were bracing for them. "we had a business meeting this morning that we pushed back back an hour but it was smooth sailing from austin." - will you make an adjustment on future flights? "no, i think it's a more scare tactic than anything else." others got that same sense. oklahoma senator tom coburn called the furloughs "a dangerous political stunt," saying that more than $100 million could be saved by using fewer consultants, supplies and less travel, and pointed to the transportation security administration, which has managed to avoid furloughs. "being a flight attendant and working as a flight attendant, i care about safety, and when you cut people out of the tower, that's safety." as of now, the furloughs mean all 47,000 faa employees, including 15 controllers,

including new york's laguardia. the faa saying yesterday there were some 400 flight delays because of these furloughs in the air traffic control towers from airline industry could experience on someday 7000 flight delays. critics say the faa absolutely has the authority in the budget to cut elsewhere, and so there's a debate on whether or not the faa and government have a choice. >> we believe the faa has the discretion not to furlough the air traffic controllers, historically have never, ever in any situation been furloughs before because the frontline safety professionals keep the planes in the air, get them to the ground and keep travelers moving, keep shipping moving and that is critical to our economy, does not have to be this way. >> we believe the way their plan is constructed is going to maximize the disruption assuming it rules out and disruptions occurred. not a good situation. rich: the obama administration says the altar of the faa staff is personnel workers, the only way to comply with the numbers of these automatic but it cuts is you have to furlough air traffic contr
the federal aviation administration saying that these should be put off. they say the law allows the faa and the administration to cut somewhere else in the 16 billion-dollar annual budget of the faa. they say the way the faa were cuts makes the delays even worse. >> under the applicable laws. the faa has the authority or the discretion to find the money elsewhere. not to lay off the workers. and, therefore, to protect the traveling and shipping public, the faa should not furlough the air traffic controllers. now congressional republicans charge the way the administration has structured this is simply for political reasons. the administration says that's absolutely not the case. they say the way is law isten o other choices than to furlough these air traffic controller if they have to reach the savings that the law requires, shep. >> >> shepard: we are expecting it to say four different flight delays faa is saying. airlines anywhere between 6700. about a quarter of the flight traffic in this country daily. in a statement the faa says they will be working with the airlines and using traff

. that is because there are fewer air traffic controllers on the job. the faa called for two furlough days for every two-week period to cut more than $600 million from the budget. airlines filed a lawsuit on friday asking a federal court to stop the furlough of air traffic controllers. they say that these cuts in hours will result in travel delays of up to an hour. a travel industry analyst says what's happening is political gamesmanship. >> the faa was shut down a few years ago, flights weren't affected. it seems to me like there is a request or directive out there to take steps so that passengers will be inconvenienced and that they will call their elected officials to get them to take action. >> reporter: here's a live picture of mineta san jose international airport. i only found one 30-minute delay this morning and a couple of 10-minute delays in oakland and sfo is on time. even if sfo avoids furloughs, travelers here could still feel the pinch because of the domino effect from delays at connecting airports. at sfo, elissa harrington, kpix 5. >> airlines say up to 6700 flights per day could be
and for the american people. >> yesterday's faa's furlough produced the predicted flight delays, and senator mcconnell said as a result of the administration's poor planning and political motives were stuck op the tarmac. what's the reaction to that? >> i find it interesting the republican is decrying the sequester in the past that he support. it's a result. we made it clear that there looks like there would be negative effects if congress failed to take reasonable action to avert the sequester, policy that everyone who was involved in writing it knew at the time and was never designed to be implemented, but designed to be bad policy and to be avoided. the fact is that congress had an opportunity, but republicans made a choice, and this is a result of a choice they made to embrace the sequester as -- and i'm quoting republicans, a victory for the tea party and a home run. i don't know that they agree with it because they changed positions on sequester a variety of times in the last several months. it should have never been policy. president put forward a comprehensive balanced approach to defic

in usual in washington, dc. for the faa the numbers don't add up. their work load has been decreasing and yet they didn't make the necessary changes to prepare for the sequestration. which they've known since last fall was coming. that's why it's just politics as usual in d.c. >> neil: so these cuts that the white house was referring to that took effect formally yesterday, aren't real? >> the cuts are real all right but the problem for the federal aviation administration is their real work load has been falling or forever a decade, and when they were told they had to do the sequestration last fall, logically you would have prepared and put your work force in place at atlanta and new york, and not at branson, missouri, which averages less than one flight per hour. they didn't do that. they were counting -- i was in washington, dc for almost 15 years. you expect things to work out, expect to never have to cut. but the cuts are here but they don't get it. for next year's budget they asked for 100 more people, and three extra billion dollars for security, even though everyone else is cutt
intensified and weather picks up, this is just the beginning. >> reporter: the faa has ordered 14,750 air traffic controllers on furlough two days a month. that's to help make up for $600 million in mandatory budget cuts called sequester. the faa sahacaed 400 delays nationwide on sunday averaging 85 minutes at new york's laguardia airport and 70 minutes at jfk. sporadic delays were also reported monday in charlotte, north carolina, and jacksonville, florida. transportation department head ray lahood says there was no other choice. >> we eliminated contracts. we cut contracts. we eliminated temporary employees. we looked everywhere possible to avoid the kind of furloughs that are now taking place. >> reporter: not everyone agrees. nick represents the airline industry which is suing to stop the furloughs. >> the faa has a budget of $15.6 billion. in a budget that big surely they can find the money to not furlough the air traffic controllers and have this kind of rolling impact on the u.s. economy. it's going to cost a lot more. >> reporter: critics argue president obama wants the public to
real business. >>> all right. first up, as airport delays mount to the faa is blaming the spending cuts sequester, forcing thousands of air traffic controllers to take unpaid leave. but republicans blame the obama administration for selectively choosing which cuts would make us all feel the most pain. take a listen to kansas senator jerry moran earlier today. >> it seems as if politics is playing a significant role in the determining what actions the faa are taking, and every indication that i have from conversations with my colleagues is it emanates from the white house. >> all right. here to talk about what i call the phony crisis and the obama democrats' attempt to raise $1.2 trillion in taxes is texas republican congressman, vice chair of the joint economic committee, my friend brady. and democratic strategist steve mcmann and townhall.com's guy benson here with me. mr. kevin brady, welcome. i know you blasted the irs for their fur lows. but i want to just put up -- i don't know if you can see this, probably not. i'm going to read the numbers. we're going to show you that the faa ha

. a couple thoughts on this. one is faa knew this was coming for two years, had a long time plan, bat and you're seeing is controllers are being laid off at the same rate for the big facilities, as they are for the smaller ones. you think faa would say, let's see where most of the people or traveling and keep those fully staffed and be a little more surgical on the smaller airports. >> shepard: sounds like a lot of this is politics. >> does seem rather odd but i don't see the controllers behind it but the administration wants to make sure everybody feels the pain here. >> does that seem understandable to you? >> not real ly. it doesn't. this is one of our great assets in this country, the ability to move across the country, and yet the government is getting in the way of this to prove a political point. we have seen the faa budget for controllers rise 50%, and traffic is down 27%. so we're throwing more money to handle less of a problem, yet now is the time we chose to start making the american people feel the pain? it just doesn't make sense. >> shepard: the american people are already feeli
